Do you have a question (on any subject) that you would like Norm, Barney and I to
answer? Send it in to earn a free pattern!
Here is Felicia's question:
"I read your blog all the time, sometimes a day or so late, but then I catch up.
I am curious what you do with your big pieces, such as the Dragon Robe and
the Guatemalan costume you are working on. They are stunning pieces of art!"
Thank you Felicia, for the compliment. Truth be told, I have a lot more
enjoyment beading the tapestries and even more so the costumes than
I do jewelry. I have boxes of jewelry I rarely see. And that is a shame to
have hours (years) of work hidden away in boxes.
I have my beaded tapestries hanging on the walls, and my Dragon Robe
is sitting on top of my CD shelf. I can see them every day, so I don't feel
like my hard work has gone to waste.
I will have a stand made for the Guatemalan Costume done in a similar
way as the one I had made for the Dragon Robe. Where exactly I will put it,
I don't know just yet. My house is getting rather full!! But I will find a worthy
place for it!

Norm the Gnome in the Know's Response:
My biggest piece was a pumpkin! I entered it into a fair and won for having the
After the award ceremony, we carved it into smaller pieces and shared it with
everyone in Gnomeville. Everyone had enough to make several pies, some
savory pumpkin soups, pumpkin gnocchi and pumpkin everything.
Good things are meant to be shared, don't you think?
Barney the Brainy Bruin's Response:
My biggest "piece" was a huge fish I caught while visiting my relatives
in Fish River.
What did I do with it? I ate it. I worked for it, I enjoyed every last morsel.
Call me greedy if you want. But let the slackers catch their own fish.
Especially the gulls. Little thieves tried to steal some of my fish even as
I was eating it. They are lucky they didn't become a side dish!!
